Overview

The theme for the 2024 18th annual Housing for Everyone competition is affordable housing with services to support independent living for marginalized community members.

The impacts of homelessness are not equal across many populations. There are conditions that make it difficult for people to maintain a stable home without additional help. To address this issue, we'll fund a select group of organizations focused on housing solutions that lead to stable, independent living situations.
